Ah, simply the best place in the Twin Cities to have a beer. I make it in about once a week and always leave happy. Food is good if you order the right thing. Stick to the standard brewpub fare and you will do fine. The 7 corners burger is the favorite of mine. Service is always quick and friendly and if you go when it isn't packed, bartenders would love to sit and talk about beer. The beer. Well there isn't really a bad beer here. I have yet to be disappointed. There are always 2 or 3 rotating seasonals as well as 2 cask conditioned beers. Everyone knows about Masala Mama, but the MM cask is the way to go. Mike Hoops keeps brewing up new and great beers. You never know what he is going to come out with next. Release day Wednesdays are great when you can try the new beer for only a buck a pint! Growlers available at a fair price, especially if you bring them back for fills. Great great brewpub.

Fantastic brewpub, a must stop for out-of-towners. They redid their interior in spring of '14, but it still has a classic Minneapolis bar aesthetic, with lots of stained glass and intricate fixtures. Service is usually awesome, a good chunk of their staff has been here forever and is as well-humored as they come.

Selection is great: the standard year-rounders (such as the fabled Masala), seasonals are usually to style and delicious, and now they always have at least one BA offering on draft! Not to mention their well curated selection of guest taps, and a ton of ciders (and a great whiskey list, I will admit).

The food is nothing to write home about; while it's still above average pub fare, this is a foodie town after all and there are much better options nearby.

We've been to some poorly run events of theirs, and parking for free/cheap isn't too easy here, but I still always recommend this place to newcomers.

Probably the best beer I've ever had in Minneapolis proper.

A rather standard looking venue that could pass for just about any place, townhall clocks are a common motive. Love the neat looking taphandles.

Service is relatively straightforward, with a menu that's slightly a little more inventive than simple burgers and fries, but not straying too far. Duck poutine anyone?

But what really sticks out are the beers. While there are many to be had, 2 of the yearly produced beers were stellar. One in particular Black H20 was one of the most amazing Oatmeal stouts I've had in years. Project 3106 was also an exceptional piece of work.

Still think about the beers I had at this place and wishing I could go back.

Pretty good vibe, though it was fairly empty when we went. I like the bar area, but didn't venture into the dining part. Didn't have any food, so I gave it a 4. Very quick service and a good selection on tap, including seasonals and cask conditioned offerings. Would definitely return for some more masala mama!

Pub, old school, lots of pub style food selections. Affordable prices.

They brew pretty good beer. Masala Mama, etc. are worthy of their high ratings. They offer flights, the staff does a good job. Good wings, good burgers, not gourmet, but worth a try.

Nice atmosphere, if you like an old saloon type place. Good IPA(Masala Mama), and descent Strong Belgian Ale. Didn't eat any food so I can't comment on that.

Pretty awesome place. In addition to the good beer selection, the awesome cider selection and amazing food, made this also a good place to take my spouse as she doesn't care for beer.
